The sculptures, garden, fountains and everything was worth taking some time to admire, you can walk around and have very nice views from the upper part, it was November so there was no water on the fountains but for sure they look even better

This is the nice painting's gallery of Germany, but you can see porcelains and old clocks and astronomy things there. The whole building is very nice- even if it is autumn - and if you just walk through the palace and not visit the museums, you will have a good time.

You need to spend several hours here. This is another museum where you feel like you are taking a course in the history of art.

A must see if visiting Dresden. For a casual, relaxed stroll around these impressive gardens, it is amazing what sculptures existed in these times. All carefully preserved to its original spec.

Visitors come to the Zwinger for the museums but we were here for the architecture and history. Some portion of he building was undergoing renovation but that did not detract from our appreciation of the place!

Loved the collection of Casper David Friedrich paintings, but was very sorry that the sculpture hall had been set up as a benqueting space for, we presume, a wedding, so all the sculptures had been moved out of sight.

Sadly that during our visit, they are under renovation. However, we can feel the grand old baroque building square surrounded by several museums of porcelain collection and renaissance paintings. This place has everything is one package. Highly recommended to visit.
